As part of our mission, WA Voices holds monthly Town Hall meetings to provide a place for our #COMMUNITY members to discuss salient issues and support one another. These meetings are open to all people who share our values and want to advocate for the civil rights of individuals with a sex offense conviction. If you would like to join our community and participate in our Town Hall meetings, please complete our very brief application form or send us an email to: hello [at] wavoices [dot] ORG letting us know: 1) your full name and 2) a brief statement of WHY you would like to join our community.
Our Town Hall meetings are held online via Zoom. A phone-in option is available for individuals who are unable to use the internet or who might prefer this method of communication. Zoom links and dial-in numbers are sent to our members via email a few days before each meeting.
About WA Voices:
Informally founded in 2016, our grassroots organization is led by those impacted by the sex offense registry in Washington State. By unifying our voices, we intend to change the harmful narratives that drive our current sex offense laws. Slowly-but-steadily, we are building a civil rights movement to overcome the harmful effects of failed and harmful policies such as registration, lifetime supervision, and shadow prisons. Ultimately, we need policies that prevent sexual harm, provide healing to victims, and welcome all people back into their communities.
“Through education and advocacy, Washington Voices seeks to prevent sexual harm while restoring the health, hope, and humanity of those experiencing the ongoing consequences of a sexual offense conviction.”
